My husband and I recently traveled to New Orleans. And while we were there we went in Saks. They had a Chantecaille counter, so, I thought I would finally try some of their products. And I am so glad I did. They are AMAZING!
So, for this past week I have been using my newly found loves as well as a couple other things!
Chaneticalle Compact Makeup in Camel - This Powder has to be one of the top powders I have ever used. I am debating on if it is actually my favorite ever. It has a very silky smooth feeling and does not leave you looking cakey.
Chantecialle Future Skin Oil Free Gel Foundation in Shea - This is a very lightweight foundation with great coverage. I like that it's made of ingredients that not only protect your skin, but heals it as well. This too may be my favorite foundation.
YSL Bronzing Powder in 3 - This is a lovely matte shade. I like it because it isn't overly dark and has a nice build able color.
Chantecialle Cheek Color in Delight - Like all the other Chantecialle products this too is beyond good. And the color is a very pretty pink-coral that I feel would look good on several different skin tones. I look forward to going to a Chantecialle counter and looking at their other colors.
MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow in Summer Haze - It's a really pretty Champagne color great for this Spring/Summer!
Laura Mercier Metallic Creame Eye Colour in Rose Rold - I love the Metallic Cream Eyeshadows, but something about the consistency of this particular color is different. It doesn't apply nicely with fingers, it did require a brush for smooth application.
(both applied with the MAC 234 Brush)
Tom Ford Lipstick in Nude Vanille - This is my favorite color and brand of lipstick at the moment. Tom Ford's lipsticks are nice matte colors with silky smooth application. They feel really great on the lips.
Chantecialle Brillant Gloss in Mirth - These are one of the best lip glosses I have ever used. They are smooth. Have no scent and are not sticky. The particular color I purchased is nice, but it doesn't wow me. I am definitely going to see what other colors they have to offer.
This week I went with Essie's Nail Varnish in Status Symbol. It's a really lovely shade of pink. It's great color for spring/summer. It's almost florescent. It's a great subdued version if you like the florescent trend, but don't think you can pull it off. I also have the Essie LuxeEffects Polish in A Cut Above on my ring finger.
I had to waste a little time today and Ulta happened to be along the way, so, I picked up some needed and unneeded items.
Boscia Makeup Breakup Cleansing Oil - This is the best Makeup Remover EVER! (They changed the packaging. I think it looks super cute! Do you?)
The Body Shop Mango Body Butter - My legs are feeling a bit dry and I thought I would try this out, it smells great!
Essie Nail Polishes from the Poppy Razzi Collection in Lights (Hot Pink) & Action (Tangerine) - The tangerine color is so pretty. I have never had a color like it. The hot pink on the other hand is probably a color I already own, but I am a sucker for hot pink!
My husband and I had the pleasure of spending the entire day together this past Wednesday (technically, I started filming/shooting Tuesday Night). So, we decided to post a day in the life video on our channel TheCurrentCouple. Here's a glimpse of our day though photo and video!
This week I decided to tone down my usual playful nails. I chose OPI's "You Callin' Me a Lyre?" from the New York City Ballet Collection. It's a very sweet, playful, soft pink. It would be great to use for a french manicure.
I personally am already a bit bored of the color and I have only had it on for a day.
And just something I became obsessed with today:
It's a Yellow Gold & 30 Point Diamond "Gypsy" Ring (We got it in the store and I will definitely be posting it on my website). I love it so much. I think it needs to become mine. I'll make sure to show this picture to my hubby when he gets home from work!! ;-)
